I haven’t posted on email in awhile, but it’s a favourite subject.
I’ve been wondering about those messages pertaining to how we should consider the environment before printing an email.
In fact, I’ve got several questions. If you can answer them, please do so in the comments:
- Does this now omnipresent blurb actually stop anyone from printing an email?
- Was it standard policy for workers at BP to include this blurb in the body of emails? Is it still?
- What about other companies? Airlines spew zillions of gallons of jet fuel into the air each day, do their employees ask me to not print emails so that the environment can be saved?
- Who prints emails? It seems so outmoded in this era of smartphones. Maybe cavemen did?
- Is this blurb the greatest example of sanctimonious behaviour ever? Did a Canadian come up with it? (we are, at our worst, perhaps the most sanctimonious gang on Earth)
- Does every Hollywood star and wannabe star include this message in their emails? I bet that wanker Adrien Grenier does. Seems like something Jane Fonda would definitely include in her missives.
- What’s next? Maybe they’ll plaster a message about how you should “Consider your liver before downing this ale” on beer bottles.
Thanks for enlightening me with your answers.
Have a great day!
